It appears that the United States government is going after many expected to have received bribes during the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bidding process. The U.S. asked Swiss police to arrest a number of FIFA executives while they were in Zurich to vote on the next FIFA president.
Switzerland has an extradition pact with the United States when it involves non-tax-related crimes.

Which FIFA executives have been named as those allegedly arrested or detained? We give you a list of those we’ve heard so far.
